Marsannay "Les Favières" 2015, Ch de Marsannay

The most northerly of the Côte d'Or's vineyards is often over-looked by wine buyers since the village has no premiers crus and tends towards less impressive pinots. Hence the popularity of its rosé wine. But in a ripe year like 2015 Marsannay has the potential to be more complete and flavourful. This entry-level Marsannay has a decent berry nose, on the palate it is linear, tight, dominated by red currant and raspberry. Lacks a bit of charm and the mouthfeel is a little rustic. Scores 63-65/100. Not of the same quality as the Marsannay "Clos du Roy" 2015 from the same producer.
